Vegetables and Leafy Greens
It’s not a surprise (at least not for most vegans out there) that leafy greens and vegetables are a pretty common source of food poisoning. As a matter of fact, throughout the last decade, veggies and fruits have resulted in a number of food poisoning outbreaks.
Most of them were caused by lettuce, celery, spinach, tomatoes, and cabbage. It’s crucial to bear in mind that leafy greens and veggies can be contaminated with Listeria, E.coli, and Salmonella. Contamination of these harmful bacteria can occur at any time. From the dirty runoff process to storing them improperly, contamination can happen across many stages of the veggie and leafy green supply.
